As a part of the ALDAU International Art Festival (AIAF), renowned Egyptian musician Omar Khairat will give a live concert at The Arena, Hurghada, on Saturday, Oct. 1.
The event is held under the auspices of the Egyptian Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities, with the aim to promote Egypt tourism.
The festival’s theme is inspired by the Red Sea’s historical role in international trade, exploration, and international expeditions. The festival’s theme also draws on the knowledge that ALDAU (Al Dhow) was a traditional Arabian sailing vessel that served in trade and achieved cross-cultural exchange.
Born in Cairo and raised in a family of musicians, Khairat brought classic perfection to a number of Egypt’s well-known films like Mafia, ‘Amir El Zala’, The Passage (El Mamar), ‘Welad El Am’ (Cousins), The Island (El Gezeera), ‘Zahaimar’, ‘Taimour and Shafeeaa’ and ‘Assal Eswed’ (Molasses).
Following his passion, Khairat traveled to Paris to study piano with Italian Maestro Vincenzo Carro.
The most acclaimed composer of his generation founded the Cairo Conservatoire, which is regarded as the premier music conservatory in Egypt.
